Bryant Johnston and Dalton Thomas were named 1st Team All-State, while four other members of the MCC baseball team were named 2nd Team All-State.

Johnston was named to the MACJC 1st Team All-State squad after a marvelous season on the mound for the Eagles. Johnston finished the season with a 9-1 record on the mound and complied a 3.23 in 21 appearances during the 2015 season. Johnston is a native of Gulfport, MS and will continue his baseball career next season in the Gulf South Conference with Delta State University.

The second member representing MCC on the 1st Team was sophomore Dalton Thomas of Grenada, MS. Thomas finished the season with a .323 batting average and led the squad in three different offensive categories. Thomas led the team in home runs (8), doubles (15), and RBI’s (43). Thomas will continue his baseball career in 2016 by playing for former MCC head coach Chris Curry at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock.

Goose Yates, Matt Berler, Austin Harrison, and Dustin Smith also received recognition on Tuesday by being named members of the 2015 MACJC 2nd Team. Yates is a native of Gulfport, MS and played most of his games at third base during the regular season for the Eagles. Yates finished the season with a .338 batting average, five home runs, and 15 doubles. Yates also saw some time on the mound for the Eagles as well by collecting a pair of saves out of the bullpen. Yates will play college baseball next season at the University of New Orleans after helping lead MCC to a postseason appearance in 2015.

Matt Berler finished his freshman season for the Eagles with very impressive offensive numbers to earn him a spot on the 2nd Team. Berler hit .364 in 2015 with 52 hits, and finished the season with a spectacular .981 fielding percentage at second base. Berler is a native of Birmingham, AL and played his high school baseball at Spain Park.

Austin Harrison also had a solid first season in an MCC uniform by totaling some impressive numbers on the mound. The former Neshoba Central star went 5-2 for the season with a 2.68 ERA. Harrison also tossed two complete games and one of those came in the postseason against East Central Community College.

Dustin Smith was the final member of the 2nd Team representing Meridian that was named by the league on Tuesday. Smith is a native of Richland, MS and completed the year by hitting .339 with 12 doubles, and three home runs. Smith also finished the season with a .989 fielding percentage at first base and also saw some action on the mound for the Eagles.

MCC finished the 2015 season with a 33-17 overall record and made an appearance in postseason play after finishing in the top four among all of the junior colleges in the state of Mississippi. The Eagles also finished the season on high marks in the classroom by compiling a team GPA of 3.56 and four of the players finished with High Honors.

Hutchinson, KS - MCC entered the 2015 NJCAA Outdoor National Championships in Hutchinson, KS with high aspirations after going in as the 15th ranked team in the country and it didn't disappoint.

Smith and Lewis entered the final after posting times of 10.25 and 10.29 in the prelims on Friday.

MCC rounded out their first year back with two National Championships, nine school records and top 20 finishes at both the Indoor and Outdoor National Championship Meets.

A possible seven games will be held over the three-day period with the top three schools from this weekend's event advancing to the NJCAA Region 23 Tournament next weekend in Eunice, La.

Meridian will draw the top seeded Hinds Community College Eagles in its opening round game which is set for Thursday evening beginning at 6 p.m. MCC played Hinds just over a week ago for opportunity to clinch the 2015 MACJC regular season title, but were swept (4-11, 8-13) at the hands of Hinds. Hinds is coming off a two-game sweep over Southwest Community College on Friday and Saturday, while Meridian was taken to the limit by East Central Community College before claiming the series in game three on Saturday by a final score of 11-1.

A pair of elimination games are scheduled for Friday, with the losing teams in games one and two meeting at 11 a.m. The loser of that contest ends their season while the victor secures a spot in the regionals and in the 6 p.m. elimination game later that evening.

The two winners of Thursday's matchups hit the diamond at 2:30 p.m. with a berth to the title game on the line. The loser of that game must bounce back quickly with a final elimination game booked for a 6 p.m. start on Friday evening.
